• Dedicated Physician Advocacy
    Through High Reliability Wellness™

    The Scott Advisory provides retainer-based services for select individuals and their families. We help you achieve, enhance, and sustain health and wellness. We focus on building customized Fortified Family Health Systems™ based on High Reliability Science. The Scott Advisory builds individualized strategies for each family member with goal-oriented processes based on personal choices.

    Our group focuses entirely on a client family’s goals. We don’t provide patient care services or offer specific medical advice. Our service complements medical care, providing prospective, guidance and resources. We also engage with other trusted family advisers to ensure successful outcomes.

    In many situations, a person’s access to healthcare is defined by their physician. However, no single provider can deliver all services needed by you or your family. For individuals needing specialized care or support, ensuring effective communication between multiple care providers can be a challenge. When seeing multiple specialists, it’s critical for an individual to receive effective care oversight, allowing for better management of comprehensive care.



    The Scott Advisory's roles include:


    Consultants who work with all types of families to create sustainable wellness legacies across generations, ensuring optimal health, longevity, and quality of life.


    Just-in-time health advocates for family members in times of crises, bringing to bear all that is needed to achieve and maintain the best possible health for each family member.


    Translators of medical reports, diagnostics, ensuring clients are well informed and prepared to engage, communicate effectively make health care decisions.
